How can i get closer to my step-dad ?

I am 13 years old. I have a wonderful step-dad who has taken care of me since I was born. He and I don’t really ever talk except when I ask him to go somewhere or when I want something. That’s the only time I ever hug him too. What should I do so I can be closer to him?

Slowly and patiently let it happen naturally. Spend a little time with him whenever possible help him with whatever he works on around the house ask his opinion on things. Don't try too hard though, just let it happen in it's own time. It will work out.;)

Maybe he is coming of age to recognize who he looks up to and is mature enough now to appreciate who his 'dad' is. I think it's great, most boys his age don't know how lucky they are and take it for granted. Bless them both.

Plan a day just him and you. Movies, park, arcade, lunch, whatever you enjoy doing. Spending one on one time with him will let him know your trying.

Find things you both have in common. Ask him questions so you can learn more about him and tell him things about you (e.g. : things you like to do, ect.)
